Knitting, Crocheting and comments about life

Knitting and Designing like a Rock Star

Nothing makes you feel more accomplished then finishing a design that you have sketched out, charted and worked through and it’s everything you hoped it to be. This was my knitting rockstar victory on Friday night!

After taking a design class with Mari Lynn Patrick at Vogue Knitting Live it has begun to get easier to at the very least organize my design process so here is my take away message to help you design like a rock star
1) swatch and gauge your work in the manner you want your finished project to be worked!

2) sketch out your design ( I know you don’t have classic training… Neither do I but practice makes perfect!)

3) knit with reckless abandon ! As much as design can be methodical … It’s got to come from the heart!

Happy Stitching!!!!
